Lush Christmas 2008

It’s my personal favorite time of the year….can you by chance guess what time of the year that would be?

It would be the announcement of the Lush Christmas 2008 Collection!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh the Muse is running around in circles in utter excitement! You’ve no idea how excited I get when Lush puts out it’s offerings for Christmas!

Before you get excited, let me tell you that Lush’s Christmas Collection is ONLY available on Lush UK’s website so far. I suspect you’ll see an update for Lush NA around the beginning or middle of November! Yes, you can order from Lush UK if you’re within the US and this is normally what I do as 1. I’m impatient and 2. I like the quality of UK Lush a bit better when compared to the US.

Lush has brought some odd favorites back and PLENTY of brand new items that are sure to please!

Returning Bath Bomb Favorites:

Twinkle, Mister Butterball, and Jingle Spells

Brand Bath Bombs:

Humango, Magic, and Snowdrops

Returning Bubble Bar Slices:

Creamy Candy Candy, Ruby Red Slippers (the Muse’s favorite!), Christmas Kisses

Brand New Bubble Bar Slices:

A Gold Star, Frothy the Snowman, The Witches’ Ball

Brand New Emotibomb, Double Fast Luck

Returning Shower Gel Favorite, SNOW FAIRY (Comes with the Muse’s highest Seal of Approval! Loves it)

Returning Soap Favorites:

Angels Delight and Snowcake (Comes with the Muse’s highest recommend and approval! LOVE it!)

Brand New Soaps:

Christmas Cake Slice

Returning Perfume Solid Favorite:

Champagne Snow Showers

Brand New Lip Balm:

Let Them Eat Cake

These are just some of the great Christmas items that Lush has released as part of their Holiday Collection! They are slowly updating the site to include the rest! Brand new box gifts, hat boxes, and other smaller gifts are available as well as old favorites are making a reappearance!

Lush Cosmetics never fails at putting out a wonderful array of great treats for the Holidays! I’ll definately be indulging for myself and friends and family!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi again!

    I have also seen this today, I’m so excited! I still have a big bottle of last years’ snow fairy, so I don’t think I order another one.

    But that emoribomb tempts me (though I know your not very possitive opinion of them…)

    The lip balm also look OK…

    Lots of hugs!

    (have you realized there are still 2 months until Christmas and we are already surrounded by Christmas collections?! This is crazy!)

  • the Muse

    me too! I just placed my order I got so hyper hehe!

    I have one big bottle left and ordered one more..I was going to order two but I decided to be good!

    I’m unsure how well you’ll like this one as it’s scented as Karma 😛 I’m not a fan are you?

    Karma has that dirt orange smell to me 😛

    It’s positively nuts that we are so swamped in Christmas goodies…It’s lovely but a bit early!!!!!!

    The balm does look ok but eggsnog was never any good so I don’t expect this to be great either 😛 I avoided it…mostly concentrated on bombs and bbs for now plus shower and soap stuff.

    I’ll order gifts as the holiday gets nearer…bit too early for gifts now 🙂

    Kayvid: So I’m guessing that you will be sending these to me as my goft this year? (kidding)

  • Sher

    Just FYI you got me into snowcake! I had to swap for some during the summer months lol now I can finally get some fresh ones!!

  • the Muse

    sher, I LOVE when people tell me that! Totally makes my day as I’m a big snowcake lover and I love when people discover it for the 1st time 🙂


    I highly suggest, if you have spare change, to call Lush NA or UK and order an entire slab! it’s well worth it 🙂 I do it almost every year and it lasts all year long with some left over to share with friends and family or use as swap bait!

    Email your home addy and I’ll send you a small sample of snowcake shower gel 😉

  • emma

    I always buy snowcake every year at Lush, it’s the yummiest soap ever! I’m looking forward to sniffing that Christmas Cake soap, looks great!

  • the Muse

    hiya emma!

    I simply ADORE snowcake…I buy an entire slab every year! Eep! I’m awful 🙂

    Christmas Cake looks scrummy! Can’t wait to smell it!

    Thanks for the comment! Hope to hear from you again soon!

  • Jenn

    Yay, christmas is here! I’ve been waiting all year to try this Snow stuff you keep talking about, but I wonder, will they stock it in Japan? I’ve haunted my Lushes (three within biking distance! THREE!) and stocked up on all sorts of goodies but I haven’t a clue whether they’d do the Christmas stuff or not. And I sincerely hope they do since any confectionary-flavored/scented stuff (cake, buttercream, cake batter etc.) has my name all over it, and that lip balm…just…yum.

    So, do you know? If this is a big enough hit in Japan to be stocked there?

  • the Muse

    Hello jenn!

    My god if they don’t have snowcake in Japan I’ll bring down the house for you 🙂 I’m positive Japan will get it as the Christmas items are worldwide…if for some odd reason they do not get it..I will personally send you a piece from the Muse’s own stash..as snowcake is a MUST for the Holiday (and everyday after)!

    Christmas items are normally stocked all around the board…germany, japan, etc..:) so you should be getting it all 🙂

    if not I’ll happily cp for you!

    Lush doesn’t do too many foody scents but if you ever need recommendations for etailers..I know plenty who do some GREAT scents..like fresh baked cookies, cake batter, etc 🙂


    Thanks for the comment, hope to chat with you again soon!

  • Sophia

    Awww I never had the chance to try Lush before, since Greece doesn’t have any store! It’s soo sad I know!! But Lush UK ships here, so I’m definetely gonna get some Christmas goodies!! Like Snowcake and Christmas Cake soaps, Marziban Xmas and Christmas Kisses bubble bars, and Mr Butterball Snowman!

  • the Muse

    hi sophia!

    eek no lush!? Yak! I’m so glad Lush UK ships worldwide!

    Enjoy your haul! Sounds like a great one 🙂

    Don’t forget to stock up on mounds and mounds of snowcake, tis the Muse favorite soap 😉

    Big Hugs from New York!

  • Jenn

    Thanks, I went to the Shibuya LUSH today and they said they’d be getting their Christmas stuff in on the 30th of October. Heh, the guy knows me by now.

    Re: food-flavored things, yes, I was eyeing that Can’t Sleep Clowns Will Eat Me you posted about a while back, but the lurking cotton candy scent scared me off. An unfortunate day in childhood (think dried, crusted cotton candy in hair, eyes, under nails, down shirt) has cured me permanently of the desire ever to see, eat or smell cotton candy again.

    But the funnel cake and buttercream and cake-like and cookie-like options all sound good. But as I think you’ve mentioned before, finding flavored items in Japan is tougher than in the US! Of note, Majolica Majorca’s cheapo 500Y Honey Pump Glosses are flavored. They all seem to have the same flavor, but it’s a good one. Not honey I wouldn’t say…more sweetly fruity. But if one of your ordering folks have 500Y left over and nothing to do with it, tell them to pick up one of those!

  • the Muse

    Hi Jenn!!!!!

    Sorry for the delayed reply! Awesome 🙂 I can’t wait to get my xmas haul 🙂

    Oh no lol I don’t mean to laugh but I can understand the dilemma of cotton candy lol!

    Oh lord yes. I heart the Japanese market so much but finding actually flavored items is difficult and ones that are flavored aren’t particularly that great 😛

    Oh yes I have almost all the Honey Plum Glosses and it’s delightful they are flavored lol! Possibly my first flavored gloss purchase in Japan!

    Aube came out with flavored ones too this past Summer but they aren’t so fabs 😛 yak!

    Someday the Japanese market will catch on that the US loves flavored glosses lol!

    Thanks so much for stopping by to reply and say hello! It’s nice talking to my Japanese readers!

    If you ever need anything from the US do drop me an email, it would be my pleasure to help with a CP!
